Photo a day experiment PADE!

“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.”-Diane A

A fellow blogger and friend Ritu KT and I, thought it would be fun to challenge ourselves by capturing special moments of each day for a month. But as we are bloggers at heart, we decided to share our journey with our readers. And what's the better way to do so than to co-host a 31-day Photo Challenge?!

PADE (Photo A Day Experiment)!

It is a 31 day photo challenge wherein each participant will post an image according to the theme of the day

What are the points to remember?

  • Have a valid blog
  • Grab the participant (I'm part of PADE) badge shared above and display on your blog
  • A banner with all 31 themes will be available on this post shortly
  • Check out the themes for each day and make sure to click a photo related to the theme (an archived image also can be used)
    • There are no rules on interpretation of themes, you can be creative and interpret the theme as per your understanding
    • You can select any theme of the 31 themes and use it but doing it in order per day will ensure that hosts will visit your blog and you stand a chance to be the Shutterbug of the Day and at the end of the month - Ace Shutterbug!
  • Share the photograph on your blog
  • Submit your blog entry link through the linky tool embedded below this post so that we can evaluate all the entries once the day is over. Multiple entries on same day are not allowed. (The link will be visible only during the month of July)
  • Each entry should have a line at the end of the post saying – "This post is my entry for the PADE conducted by Just a mom” or “ Things to rave about
  • Help PADE by spreading the word on your blogs, facebook and twitter pages so that more and more bloggers can share this experience 

Where are the themes?

We will be doing themes in the order 1 -31. You are welcome to do it with us and leave your post links in the linky tool below each post for the challenge starting 1st July.

We’ll announce the “Shutterbug of the day” everyday from the entries we receive through the linky tool each day. From those 31 Shutterbugs, we’ll select one “Ace Shutterbug” in the end of July.

You also have the option to do the challenge in any order.

What’s In It For Me?

A chance to connect with fellow bloggers, click new photos, get new readers to your blog and win awesome badges to showcase on your blog! Shutterbug badges for host’s favorite entry per theme and Ace Shutterbug for the best of all entries throughout the challenge.

You also have a chance to be featured in the hosts' theme post the next day!

Cool. When does it start?

  3. good concept.. but can we share the link of previously published photography post here in case if it fits the theme of the day?

    1. Rat we can use fresh or archived image,

      If you want to post a published post of yours, that also is welcome..... however do make sure to link it to PADE and clearly mention the theme of the day in the post.

      Hope that helps :)
